My Solution on Assignment 1 - Problem 3

This is my Solution of Assignment 1 - Problem 3 from the Computer Science Course CS106A of Prof. Mehran Sahami at the STANFORD University.

CheckerboardKarel_v2.java
/*
 * File: CheckerboardKarel_v2.java
 * ----------------------------
 * When you finish writing it, the CheckerboardKarel class should draw
 * a checkerboard using beepers, as described in Assignment 1.  You
 * should make sure that your program works for all of the sample
 * worlds supplied in the starter folder.
